Wildlife Problems in Louisville, KY

Located on the Ohio River, Louisville, KY, provides a wealth of places for wildlife to live. However, nuisance animals frequently end up in houses. The search for food and shelter brings them inside, and removal can be difficult.

Climbing Squirrels

Kentucky homeowners who hear pests scurrying in their attic may have a squirrel problem. Indoors, the rodents chew electrical wires and tear up insulation. Tree squirrels are good climbers and can easily get inside through broken shingles or vents.

Dangers of Bat Guano

Bats can get into Louisville homes through crevices smaller than an inch wide. Infestations are dangerous for residents because bats can transmit rabies through scratches, blood, and saliva. A single bat encounter in a living space is cause for concern, as bites often go unnoticed.

Raccoon Diseases

These animals thrive in urban and suburban areas throughout Kentucky. Raccoons rip into trash bags and raid gardens for a meal. The pests can carry illnesses like rabies and canine distemper, and their droppings also spread raccoon roundworm.

Snakes in the Grass

Snakes tend to lurk in the tall grasses of yards and public spaces, where they incite fear and panic. While most native snakes are harmless, timber rattlesnakes, whose bites are fatal unless given immediate medical attention, are abundant in the area.

Additionally, since snakes set up their nests where food is present, and rodents are some of their favorite meals, finding multiple snakes on private properties may indicate secondary pest issues.

Other Local Pests

Mole tunnels create unsightly dirt mounds in Louisville yards. The pests rarely get into buildings, but the damage they cause to turf and landscaping can be costly to repair. Similarly, groundhogs also dig up lawns, creating holes that become tripping hazards.
